God Street Wine & Friends Kick Off New York Run

God Street Wine kicked off a three-night hometown run at New York’s Gramercy Theatre last night. It was the first time the band’s original lineup had performed in New York since 2010. In addition to the band’s five co-founders, latter-day God Street Wine member Jason Crosby played keyboards and fiddle with the band throughout their first set (Crosby appeared with the band during their recent West Coast run as well). Likewise, New Jersey singer Lizzy Friel and Native percussionist John Woody sat in with the band throughout their entire first set.

Nodding to their roots in the ’90s, the expanded ensemble took the stage to the Seinfeld TV theme and opened their set with a nod to their old haunt “Nightingale.” The five core members of God Street Wine opened their second set sans guests but brought Crosby, Friel and Woody back onstage during “Wendy.” They contributed to the show throughout the rest of the set. God Street Wine will return to New York’s Gramercy Theatre this evening.

Been listening to some old tapes lately and feeling so nostalgic. There was no one better. I wish they’d put out some archival stuff, though. So glad to see the band popping up more and more.

The most underrated band in jam-bands history. Saw them in boston in ’97, the theater was empty but the music was great…

The band also played the theme from Twin Peaks in the encore after Without You.
